Team GB's Jason Kenny, Jack Carlin and Ryan Owens win silver at UCI Track World Championships

Jason Kenny, Jack Carlin and Ryan Owens have won silver for Great Britain in the men's team sprint at the UCI Track Cycling World Championships in Apeldoorn.

The trio were beaten by Holland's Jeffrey Hoagland, Harrie Lavreysen and Nils van Thoenderdaal in a final decided by half a second.

Holland, who also set the fastest times in qualifying and the first round, finished in 42.727 seconds.

It is Britain's first medal in the discipline in a world championships since 2011, also in Apeldoorn.

Six-time Olympic champion Kenny only returned to racing in January, having initially decided to retire following the Rio Olympics.

Britain mixed and matched their line-up in each round of the event, with Joe Truman joining Carlin and Owens in qualifying and Phil Hindes racing alongside Kenny and Carlin in the first round.

Meanwhile, Laura Kenny helped Great Britain qualify second fastest in the women's team pursuit in her first competitive outing since giving birth six months ago.

Katie Archibald, Elinor Barker, Emily Nelson and Kenny set a time of four minutes 19.177 seconds, behind only defending champions the United States who posted the best time of four minutes 18.836 seconds.

Four-time Olympic champion Kenny, 25, made her return to competition much faster than expected following the birth of baby Albie.
